  • Boulder City Council holds special meeting to discuss racism

    March 18, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Boulder City Council, 1777 Broadway, Boulder, CO 80302, USA

    Boulder strives to be a welcoming and inclusive community for everyone. The police incident that occurred on March 1 did not reflect these values; the city can and will do better going forward.

    City Council will hold a special meeting on Monday, March 18 at 6 p.m. to have a community conversation about racism, community values and what must be done to improve racial equity for all members of Boulder.

    “Racism – whether explicit or implicit – exists in our nation, and it exists in our community,” said Mayor Suzanne Jones. “As this recent incident illustrates, racial bias impacts both individuals’ lives and the entire community and undermines our promise of Boulder being open and welcoming to all. We recognize the need to take additional action to become the community we say we are and want to be. We hope this community conversation can be a useful step towards that goal.”

    Jones invited community members to join city council on March 18 to have a conversation about race, bias within the community and city government, and racial equity to help develop a framework to move forward. Boulder’s special meeting is intended to bring this issue to the forefront of how city government and the community can work together.

    “I am deeply saddened by last week’s incident,” said City Manager Jane Brautigam. “This individual committed no crime, was in his own backyard, and we failed to respect him at his own home. While we do not know all of the facts yet, I am truly sorry that we did not live up to community values and expectations.”

    “On behalf of the police department and the city, I would like to apologize,” said Police Chief Greg Testa. “Our officers are trained to treat every individual with respect. Last week’s actions by an officer furthered fear in our community and impacted a Boulder man who did nothing wrong. Going forward, the police department will do better. We will increase training on racial bias and emphasize training around community values to ensure this does not happen again.”

    Testa said that a full internal affairs investigation is underway. When the investigation is complete, the police department will publicly release all officers’ body camera video and an executive summary of the investigation.

    The special city council meeting will begin at 6 p.m. in Council Chambers, 1777 Broadway. The meeting will be televised and livestreamed on boulderchannel8.com.

    Goodbye Cory: Speaker, Andrew Romanoff

    We are more than ready to have a senator who actually represents Coloradans (rather than special interests and Donald Trump). In that spirit, DWBC will continue our Goodby Cory series of speakers with Gardner-challenger, Andrew Romanoff, for our March program.

  • Tarana Burke: Creating a Movement

    April 15, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Macky Auditorium Concert Hall, -0285, 1595 Pleasant St, Boulder, CO 80309, USA

    Doors for the event will open at 6:00 pm. Tickets are required for this event. Ticket prices are $2 for students, $10 for staff and faculty, and $25 for community members. Student/staff/faculty tickets can be purchased in the University Memorial Center at 10:00 am starting on Monday, March 18th. People must present their CU BuffOne Card at time of purchase and there is a maximum of two tickets per person. Community can purchase their tickets at macky.colorado.edu.

    Tarana Burke shares the story behind the genesis of the viral 2017 TIME Person Of The Year-winning ‘me too.’ Movement, and gives strength and healing to those who have experienced sexual trauma or harassment.

    #MeToo is not just an overnight hashtag sensation; Tarana has dedicated more than 25 years of her life to social justice and to laying the groundwork for a movement that was initially created to help young women of color who survived sexual abuse and assault. The movement now inspires solidarity, amplifies the voices of thousands of victims of sexual abuse, and puts the focus back on survivors. In her upcoming book, Where the Light Enters, Tarana discusses the importance of the ‘me too.’ Movement as well as her personal journey from "victim to survivor to thriver." Tarana's continued work with the 'me too.' movement has earned her the honor of being named The Root 100's most influential person of 2018.

    A sexual assault survivor herself, Tarana is now working under the banner of the ‘me too’ Movement to assist other survivors and those who work to end sexual violence. She is also senior director of programs at Brooklyn-based Girls for Gender Equity. On stage, she provides words of empowerment that lift up marginalized voices, enables survivors across all races, genders, or classes to know that they are not alone, and creates a place for comfort and healing to those who have experienced trauma.
